Hello there and welcome! My name is Tayler and I'm so glad you stopped by. This is where I share my passion for homemaking and encourage you to step into the role God has you in with joy and intentionality.
Thankful Homemaking: Cultivating a safe and loving home for those the Lord has entrusted me with. Taking care of the floors that little feet run on, the walls that see my fondest memories, and the hearts of the people within my home. It’s creating a space of comfort, where all can find rest. It’s nourishing those who sit at our table and making it a place where joy is had by all. A place where it’s evident that the Lord shines the brightest. It’s living out my mission field here, in the mundane work. It’s choosing to find the beauty, blessing, and privilege in all of it.
A little more about us ~ I am married to my best friend, Matt. We met our junior year of high school, married at 18, and have been building our lives together every day since. We recently loaded up our family and moved from our once acre homestead in Arizona all the way to Kentucky! We are trusting in the Lord and here with open hands to see what He has for us.
We are parents to identical twin boys, Wesley Carter and Jax Matthew, who went to be with Jesus a few days after they were born at 28 weeks on December 6, 2015. A few months later we felt this strong urge to start the home study process and pursue adoption. We adopted our son, Carter Jaxson, born August 2016 and have been hooked on him since day one. You can read all about our adoption story here.
Our daughter Adalynn was born 11 days before Carter's first birthday, making us parents to "Irish twins!" Our daughter Kennedy was born January 2019, and Quinn joined our tribe June of 2021. We are forever thankful for the little feet running throughout our home.
Jesus is the center of our home and we exist to radiate His light in everything we do. I am blessed to be able to spend my days raising our little ones. I started this blog as a way to keep track of memories we create and adventures we take, as well as a place to share as I navigate homeschooling, homemaking, homesteading, and motherhood. I am in no way an expert and usually find myself learning something new everyday. If you have any questions or want to chat, please reach out, I would love to connect with you!
